Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I searched around and saw storage but not many vanities.

I just got my vanity in today, I'm probably going to get a chest to store everything else, because these drawers are small! They also don't open all the way.  This is my set up for now.

 

Whats your set up like?

2014-05-11 22.05.07.jpgThis is my main makeup area. I use the cubes to the left of the table for storage, as well as many of the shelves (which were originally intended to house my books, lol) and the top drawer of my yellow dresser. 

2014-05-11 22.04.47.jpgI keep most of my nail polishes on top of the dresser I share with my boyfriend. There also are bottles in my daughter's bedroom and on my white shelves. I also keep some in a cake stand. LOL!

2014-05-11 22.04.15.jpgAforementioned cake stand that holds random bottles of polish. 

2014-05-11 22.11.44.jpgI have this little yellow shelf with hooks where I keep a couple of piggy banks but I also post up ideas and inspiration on the magnetic board above the yellow shelf.

2014-05-11 22.06.35.jpgThe top shelf above my makeup desk holds magazines, a couple of photos and knick nacks and some glittery nail polish shades.

2014-05-11 22.06.41.jpgThe bottom shelf has more photos (I love having family photos all over my house, but I digress, this is about makeup storage), my knock off perfumes and some body oils, several of my favorite blushes, my Formula X nail polishes that I use the most, my Fresh lip scrub, a bunch of lip glosses and a plastic three drawer thingy that holds fake eyelashes, some eyeshadows and a few cream eyeliners.

2014-05-11 22.07.04.jpgOn top of my dresser I have an acrylic lipstick holder I got from HauteLook that has a few of my favorite lippies.

Thank you! I've never been afraid to spray paint anything that needed jazzed up a bit. Colorful ought to be my middle name. LOL :smileyhappy:

2014-05-11 22.10.58.jpg(Sorry for the sideways photo) The top drawer of my yellow dresser has some random receipts, extra sponges and stuff, contacts, a lighter for my candles and a couple of drugstore mascaras I picked up that I'll get around to trying eventually. 

2014-05-11 22.07.23.jpgOn top of my desk, I used an office desktop organizer from Target to hold my palettes. There are eyeshadow and blush palettes mostly here. In front of the palettes are some plastic cup like holders from Target that hold my mascaras, eyeliners, foundations and BB creams.

2014-05-11 22.07.29.jpgIn front of those plastic cups, I have another acrylic organizer that has just random makeup. I also have another cup that holds concealers and highlighters.

2014-05-11 22.07.33.jpgTo the right of that, I have my Hourglass finishing powders, my favorite bronzers and powder highlighters.

2014-05-11 22.08.04.jpgThen I have a plastic tray I spray painted gold. It holds my brushes, some Tocca mini perfumes and some face powders.

Thank you, YouAreAlways! I saw the ideas on Etsy and just made them myself and tweaked them to my liking. Then I printed them at Kinkos. LOL

I use my sephora boxes to hold foil and deluxe samples too! It's perfect and it's recycling :smileyhappy:

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I think I would go insane trying to choose one colour to wear! My lippys are all tucked into one drawer together blushes highlighters and bronzers in another and primers concealer and foundations in another. image.jpg image.jpgimage.jpg

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I like the way you have things organized. Sometimes I do feel like I have too many options, but then I still keep buying stuff. #makeupaddictproblems Haha

I need more Drawer space!

I do too heartsmyface! I don't have any drawers except for the top one in my yellow dresser that sits beside my desk. My boyfriend actually suggested that I draw out a concept of what I want my beauty area to be and then we'll go shopping to find the pieces to fit it. So I'm looking for a table with some drawers and then probably a set or two of the Alex drawers from Ikea. What I have now is ok, but it doesn't totally fit my needs (and growing collection) anymore.

Love everyone's makeup and skincare areas. I find having a lamp right behind my mirror gives me enough light to put my makeup on even with natural light coming in from the window. I put my makeup in plastic baskets to keep it organized.

That is one area my room is lacking in - natural light and good lighting! We rent our home so we can't install additional lighting. And I don't have room in my current setup for a big mirror (because I need the shelves above the desk for storage).

Re: Show us your vanity/make up set up!

I find these type of posts very interesting since my spaces aren't the average.

 

i do have an antique vanity that's been in my family for three generations, but I obviously don't use it as such. I keep a mirrored perfume tray on it where I put the next day's jewelry for easy access.

 

Technically I guess you could say I use a vanity in my "beauty room". It's a quarter bath, away from the actual bathroom.

I love antique vanities! I had one for the longest time. I had painted it so many times it was just ridiculous. I don't remember now when I got rid of it. I think my tastes changed or something broke on it. But now I wish I still had it!
